They were all extremely nice, informative, and accommodating! My plans changed with childcare the day I needed to get my car and they waited a couple of minutes after closing to allow me to come get my car that day. They kept me in the loop on every step of the process and I will definitely use them again and recommend to friends!

We have used Ulmer's Auto for many years (35+) -- back to when they only had one shop on Salem Rd. They are honest, efficient, effective, knowledgeable and friendly. Brian does take after his father which is very positive and therefore is a very good owner. His staff is first class and they have super memories, of course, their computer systems helps them.

I have been a customer of Ulmer's for 28 years, bringing more than a dozen vehicles in over that time. Their work has always been of the highest quality and their customer service is excellent. Over the years, I've gotten into a few jams and they were very generous in their efforts helping me through them. Most recently, a service station pumped gas that was 70% water into my son's Camaro. Ulmer's found the problem, found other customers also affected, provided full documentation, including photos, to assist customers in getting damages paid. And, in fact, the service station is paying all costs to the affected customers. I have every confidence when I drop a car off to Ulmer's and they have never let me down.

10/10. I showed up there last week right at closing time, a nail in my tire, and 2 little kids in the backseat. I had early meetings and would have likely missed them with a flat but for Ulmer's. They took their time to throw on the spare tire when many places could've turned me away. Patched my tire and put it back on this week. Would recommend them to anyone. Great people and business.

They always do a great job. I’ve taken my family’s cars to them for years, from ancient Volvo wagons to equally an ancient BMW convertible, likely something like 10 cars of various makes and models, and I’ve been quite happy with their service. Prices are fair, and work is always completed in a timely manner. The only thing is it’s best to book at least a week before you need scheduled service because they are very busy.

Ulmer's is one of the very few Auto care businesses I've done business with that conducts itself with integrity and stands behind the services it provides. I've been a customer of theirs for over 20 years and they consistently outshine the competition because they value their customers and stand behind their work. I recommend you give them a chance to prove it to you by scheduling your next service appointment today.

Where do I even begin?! I’ve been loyal for almost 20 years to a mechanic on the west side. However after moving to Anderson, it just wasn’t working to keep driving so far. A neighbor referred us and knowing I was so nervous promised that they were trustworthy and I would love as much as our old place. He was RIGHT! I already had the list of items to be taken care of the first time I took to Ulmers. The diagnostic list they gave me matched perfectly. The pricing was almost exactly the same. The convenience of being so close to home, the customer service being updated every step of the way and work performed couldn’t be beat. I was very hesitant to switch but now am happy to say that I’ve found someone we trust just as much. We recently needed significant work done again and once again, I was more than impressed start to finish. Cannot say enough about this place. Don’t overthink it, just call!
